Since CVS tracks files independently we could make it appear as though
the spec had never been part of the reference implementation.  This is
probably extremely crack though, since we'd end up with ChangeLog
entries referring to nothing...  I generally think that this is a Bad

Aside from that, splitting the spec out of the reference implementation
is rather orthogonal to changing version control systems.

Why hasn't anybody done the split already?  Was there something that
made it difficult?
